    Well, on the radio they said it’s $30,000 per couple so we can each pony up $15,000 and pretend to be a couple.

    Didn’t someone tell Obama that Pecha Kucha was last week…? He’s gonna be sad he missed it.

    Seriously, there must be some upward graph of the fundraising totals brought in by the last ten or twenty Presidents, and it will go on upward no matter who is in the next terms.

    Interesting comments.

    However, if you are interested in meeting the President, you can volunteer with ODP & get a chance to have lunch with him:

    Well, the good news for us ‘Villebillies is that the Obama traffic jam will be miles north of us at East Kanawah Ave. on the southern border of Worthington.

    It’s taking place a few doors down from me! I’m excited for my dog walk tomorrow.

    North of Beechwold even. Possibly Sharon Twp.

    I keep trying to boost the area by renaming it South Worthington.

    Hmmm … I know Kanawah is Columbus Schools, so I don’t think it’s Sharon Township/Worthington. It’s in a no-man’s land.

    Graceland?

    The street is bustling with secret service, cops and nosy neighbors (me included!). There’s a CNN truck and satellite that has been here since yesterday. So far no Obama sightings though.
